These turkeys are ready to ruffle some feathers!  Made with layers of colorful tissue paper, these turkeys are perfect as place cards on the Thanksgiving dinner table!

Step 1: Step 1

Stack 8 sheets of 3x3 inch alternating yellow and red tissue paper together.  Cut scalloped edge.  Fold accordian style.  Fasten the folded tissue paper with a piece of floral wire.

Step 2: Step 2

Open up the accordian like a fan.  Pull up one layer of tissue paper at a time towards the bottom of the fan shape to form the turkey's feathers.

Step 3: Step 3

Glue a pom pom in the middle of the tissue paper.  Glue two googly eyes onto the pom pom.  Cut beak from yellow cardstock and glue onto the pom pom. 

Step 4: Step 4

The turkey is fastened onto cardstock by punching a small hole in the cardstock, then threading the wire through the hole.  On the other side, place a piece of scotch tape to fasten down the wire onto the cardstock.  Write the name on the cardstock.
